You would have to check on the subversion list. The particular issue I
looked at was including path information in the global ignore pattern,
so trying to use something like 'source/*.txt' to ignore .txt files
only in a 'source' directory doesn't work. The advice I received was
that ignore patterns should not contain path components.

However, I would imagine it is perfectly legal to use 'obj' or
'[Oo][Bb][Jj]' with no path components to ignore any object called,
well, OBJ.
